POINT OF VIEW: Burner: 12” EP

There was a bit of a ska influence creeping into the riffs opening the record, which quickly gives way to slightly generic pop punk sound that didn’t really move me. I was also slightly annoyed that Side B was the same tracks as Side A. At least some art on the other side would have been cooler than simply a repeat. Speaking of art, my favorite parts of this record were the dark and gritty-looking hand-drawn and painted cover artwork, and the collage art in the liner notes, all of it dope as hell. I think if more of this record sounded like the title track, I’d have been into it, but as it stands, I’ll pass.
